February is Black History Month. What do you know about Black History? Likely, there is much more for you to learn. The Library and the Racial Justice Task Force have worked on building a collection of books that
can help us fill in the gaps in our knowledge and even correct some of the misinformation we may have learned in school. Whether you are 3, 30, or 90 and whether you like to read non-fiction, memoir, fiction, poetry, or even graphica, the library has something
I am looking forward to watching the movie Just Mercy, based on the book by the same title, which was
released in theaters in January. Just Mercy, by Bryan
Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, is about his work as a lawyer for clients on death row. This is one of the first books I read after I became aware of racial justice as a very important issue to me. Just Mercy was compelling and so inspiring. Bryan Stevenson jumped to the top of my list of heroes. I bought the book for friends and relatives. I highly recommend this book to any who have not already read it. We have two copies in the church library.
We look forward to seeing you in the library in February!
